may have been aware of the allegations before then. joining to us short it out is bret baier, host of "special report." bret? >> hi. the big story today the multiple threads of this investigation of the resignation of c.i.a. director general david petraeus. fox news can confirm that attorney general eric holder was informed in late summer that the f.b.i. was investigating general petraeus at that time. however, we're told that holder was not given details during that period. source tells us that is consistent with long-standing bureau policy not to brief congress or the white house in the middle of a criminal investigation. when it does notvo a security threat -- not involve a security threat. members of congress wanted to be briefed, they said. it appears the probe began when a petraeus family friend reported to the f.b.i. she was receiving anonymous threatening e-mails and investigators linked those e-mails to paula broadwell, the general's biographer. the tone of the e-mail suggested that broadwell perceived the woman as a romantic rival. the facebook reportedly discovered the a
provide that 5 million jobs in the u.s., and they tend to -- your story aside they tend to be fairly high jobs, relatively high-paying jobs. they tend to be weighted towards the manufacturing sector, and so to the extent that we haven't really on the national scale at least at the federal government level, come up with a systematic way of trying to promote ourselves as a destination and there are certainly a lot of reasons beyond the cost of labor companies look to invest here and that has to do with education level, it has to do with putting the challenges aside some of the top educational institutions in the world. we have a legal system that protect investor rights, we have intellectual property rights that are very robust so there are other reasons companies look to invest and that's something we are trying to encourage around the world. the title of this is dillinger and opportunities and i think you leave out some of the challenges very well. one of the great opportunities and we don't know what the scale or the scope will be with shale gas and what we might see in the coming decade
the system. it is impossible for us to keep an accurate accounting of how many did not. i will tell you that at the board of veterans' appeals, we keep track of the claims that are returned. it breaks down how many claims every year. they did not break them down by the power of attorney for each organization. >> my bet is your offices are doing a great job. if it is working so successfully, maybe there is an opportunity to streamline its even more. if your are having a very high success rate, maybe there is a way to look at the process and slim it down a little bit. your rate of success should be a benefit to you and the veterans who are receiving it. we asked them for the number yesterday it. we expect to receive them shortly. >> we share that with us individually? that would help us make the case for why your service officers can process this. i'm a the be a duplicate some of the work. it is like maybe we can cut some of that bout. maybe you can get some comments on this. i know it is a big issue. we are shoveling on the armed services committee. we have been successful in getting men

all session. dow closing flat. nasdaq down slightly. but that doesn't stop us from looking for ideas on "mad money." yes, we have an entirely man made crisis. one that could not only cause a huge firings and curtail retail spending dramatically, but it's also driving people out of a stock market where individual companies are giving you positives that would normally provide a tremendous backdrop to a higher market. you know there was a time when some good news over multiple sectors would produce a bountiful bull. yes, good enough things occurred with individual companies that the sum total would produce overall gains in many stocks. we used to call this pin action. now we get nothing. no spillover. the 1 pin gets knocked down. and nothing else falls with it. let me just go over some of the good news, some of the nabbing down 1 pins just today that are being obscured by this darn cliff walk. let me show you what you might have missed and will continue to miss until president obama convenes all the leaders of congress and sends them to camp david to hammer out an agreement in time for
